As you may have noticed the Chromebook Pixel 2 is no longer available in the online Google Store but it can still download Android-based apps from the Play Store and run them without any problem.
The Chromebook Pixel 2 line was discontinued and it’s quite possible that Google is working on a new Chromebook Pixel device that will grab the spotlight much like this last one did. The feature that made the Chromebook Pixel 2 stand out when compared to the previous generation was the touchscreen.
A while ago, Google announced that it will be bringing Google Play Store to ChromeOS which is what the Chromebook Pixel 2 runs on. And this move made perfect sense since the device has a touchscreen and most apps found in the Google Play store are designed with that particular function in mind.
But now, this Android app support for ChromeOS is far more stable and it will enable Chromebook Pixel 2 owners to download any app or game they want and use them like they would on a tablet.
Due to the fact that Google stopped making the model, several rumors have surfaced about an upcoming Chromebook Pixel 3. Supposedly, this device will run a new operating system that goes by the name Andromeda.
The Andromeda OS is a combination between two operating systems, ChromeOS and Android, and it’s something that the developers at Google have been working on for some time now. It has been described more like merging ChromeOS functions into Android.
The upcoming device is also rumored to go by the internal name ‘Bison’ and it is believed that it will be an ultra-thin laptop with a 12.3-inch touchscreen display. It’s said to even come with a detachable keyboard – which is specific to nowadays hybrid devices and that it will presumably be launched sometime in the third quarter of 2017.
